First Friday

Our plans for Friday night took us downtown. First, we had dinner at Casa Don Juan. We've been once before and we liked it, but this visit was muy bueno! The salsa was still too watery but it was a bit spicy so it was much better this time. The inlaws had flautas and chicken tacos, they had no complaints. Frank and I shared carnitas. They were awesome. They make their own tortillas in house, the corn were the best. I felt like I was in Mexico. I was in my happy place.

I'm itching to go back, already.

After dinner we walked a block over to where First Friday is held. They've lost a good portion of their funding so it's a much smaller event than it used to be. Still, it was interesting to see the local artists' work, thrift stores, antique shops and galleries.

I nearly died in one thrift shop. I had what I believe would be close to an asthma attack. I could hardly breathe, I could only cough and weeze. It was too dusty and musty for me to take normal breaths.

We only saw the stores and galleries that are at Colorado and Main. We didn't see those that are off the beaten path. We'll have to check them out another time.
